New American Standard Bible

Psalm 124

Praise for Rescue from Enemies.

A Song of Ascents, of David.

1“Had it not been the Lord who was on our side,”
Let Israel now say,
“Had it not been the Lord who was on our side
When men rose up against us,
Then they would have swallowed us alive,
When their anger was kindled against us;
Then the waters would have engulfed us,
The stream would have [a]swept over our soul;
Then the raging waters would have [b]swept over our soul.”

Blessed be the Lord,
Who has not given us [c]to be torn by their teeth.
Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

Psalms 124

Псалом 124

1Песнь восхождения.

Те, кто надеется на Господа, – как гора Сион:

не поколеблются, пребудут вовеки.

2Как горы окружают Иерусалим,

так Господь окружает Свой народ

отныне и вовеки.

3Жезл нечестивых не останется

над землей праведных,

чтобы праведные не протянули

свои руки к беззаконию.

4Будь добр, Господи, к добрым

и к правым в сердцах своих.

5Но тех, кто следует кривыми путями,

да отвергнет Господь вместе со злодеями.

Мир Израилю!
